Just confirming what everybody is saying: Great chicken (that's all they serve) and atmosphere. It's outdoors but under a palapa so you might want to avoid the place in the summer. If you want to feel like a local or just want to eat good on the cheap, this is one of the best places. We eat here at least... More

This is a must visit for us every time we are in Rocky Point. It's delicious and inexpensive - you get a lot of food for very little money. This is what El Pollo Loco wishes it was - char-grilled chicken that is fresh and moist with the most scrumptious garnish of pickled red onions on the side. You walk... More

Have no idea how they give that flavor to their chicken but it is distinct and delicious! Family style seating and ordering. If you have eaten here you have been to Rocky Point!

Delicious chargrilled chicken, homemade giant tortillas. Tortillas the size of pizzas! Chicken served with tortillas, spanish rice and delicious refried beans. Enough food for many or several meals. We go here EVERY time we go to Rocky Point. Its an outdoor restaurant with dirt floors and no windows. We pick it up and take it back to hotel or house.

This place cooks the best grilled chicken in RP! Worth the visit. I have been here many times and only once have I had a stomach problem. Seating is outdoor under a large palapa and you can order to go as well.
